March 11, 2018 – Pastor’s Corner

Pastor’s Corner – 
A father was walking down a neighborhood street with his young daughter on his shoulders. The child greeted neighbors as they walked past: “Hello, Mrs. DeLong! Hello, Mr. Weller!” The grownups commented on how much she had grown. The puzzled child said, “I haven’t grown this big – I’m just sitting on my dad’s shoulders!”
 
“In many ways, the amazing work of the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) today is a result of sitting on the shoulders of the people who have come before us,” said Denise Honeycutt, former UMCOR deputy general secretary. “Seventy-five years ago, the men and women of our church looked out into the world and said, ‘We’ve got to have a conscience as a church reaching out to the world.’ ” Since then, said Honeycutt, we as The United Methodist Church have expanded upon the commitment of the compassionate people who came before. “We are compelled by Christ to alleviate human suffering,” she said.
 
When you hear about a disaster or humanitarian crisis, and you give to UMCOR one hundred percent of the money you designate goes toward people in need.
 
How does UMCOR do that? Through UMCOR Sunday. People who give this Sunday, March 11 provide the base of support for UMCOR’s work, explained Honeycutt.
 
“UMCOR is beloved by many for its ability to respond quickly to needs, whether those needs ever make the news or not,” she said. “The only reason we are able to do that is because people give on UMCOR Sunday which provides undesignated funds for UMCOR.”
 
UMCOR does not receive any apportionment or World Service dollars, she added. “I love the fact that we can say to folks that, when you give to a particular, designated, named ministry, 100 percent of your money will go there because UMCOR Sunday covers the costs of administration and provides the foundation for UMCOR.”
 
I hope you will support this special offering . . . it makes a tremendous difference to the most vulnerable people in our world.
 
Enthusiastic Peace,
Pastor Tyler

March 4, 2018 – Pastor’s Corner

Pastor’s Corner – 
Dear Friends,
 
Lent is one of my favorite seasons in the church. It is a time in the early church that was designed specifically for preparing new people to the tradition, to learn, study, and envelope themselves in understanding why they were called to the Christian life. All of their work and development culminated with a baptism on Easter Sunday to demonstrate resurrection into a new life.
 
In the 21st century, it has become a time of re-engaging our faith. As your pastor, I invite you to continue to seek ways to engage in a new spiritual practice this season. Perhaps you would like a simple text message reminder; you can sign up for reminders by texting Lent2018 to 797979. Another great practice to begin is to listen to our sermons online, when you miss a Sunday by going to shilohbillings.church/sermonlisten, sign up for the podcast or download our app. By staying connected to Shiloh, you can create positive habits to pull you back to your faith in the busy-ness of life.
 
I hope you will continue to deepen your faith this season as we journey toward the cross, Shiloh, and that glorious Easter morning. We hope you will join us during Holy Week to complete this journey, information can be found online and in the monthly newsletter.
Enthusiastic Peace,
Pastor Tyler

February 25, 2018 – Pastor’s Corner

Pastor’s Corner – 
This week we continue our study of the “I Am” statements shared in the Gospel of John by focusing on when Jesus said, “I Am the Bread of Life.”  Satisfaction is something that is hard to find, we think a meal widll satisfy and then we find ourselves hungry soon after, or we think something will fix our problem only to find it leaves us aching still.  This “I Am” statement draws us to question and explore how God can fulfill our needs through us seeking to live by God’s guidance each day, to trust and to follow even when it seems what God is offering won’t satisfy.  
As a part of our worship Sunday we are going to be invited to offer relief to the people of the Blackfeet Parish and reservation.  This winter has been hard on us, but it has hit that region of our state doubly hard.  People are trapped in their homes without food, firewood or connection to medical resources.  The United Methodist Committee on Relief has approved Bishop Karen Oliveto’s request for a $10,000 grant to support our relief efforts there.  Even still the work is hard and teams are going out to isolated homes to find out if people are starving, suffering or even still alive.  Please hold the teams in prayer as this is scary and challenging work.
 
Pastor Dawn Skerritt of Columbia Falls UMC is our disaster coordinator and she is working in partnership with Pastor Calvin Hill of the Blackfeet Parish to organize the relief effort.  We are collecting the following items this Sunday in church or they can be delivered to Grace UMC between 3-5pm Sunday.  Canned/pantry items, formula, gallon zip lock bags, diapers, grocery bags and other non-perishable foods.  You can also donate at yacumc.org/donate or place  check/cash in the offering plate Sunday marked “BUMP Relief.”
 
Let’s work Sunday to be the hands and feet of Christ and bring the “bread of life” to our brothers and sisters in need.
 
Enthusiastic Peace,  Pastor Tyler

February 18, 2018 – Pastor’s Corner

A message from our Pastor – 

As I write this Pastor’s corner, I am sitting in a coffee shop, offering Ashes to friends and strangers.  Meanwhile, images on the television show news about a school shooting in Florida.   A man next to me just bemoaned the seemingly consistent school gun violence and 4 teenagers sit at a table enjoying each other’s company acting oblivious to the drama playing out on the wall behind them.
 
This is the complex world we live in involves the sacred colliding with the everyday, pain bordered by moments of joy, and our Christian life in lent calls us to repent amidst the continued pace of life.  Repentance goes beyond giving up something, it is the act of getting out from under life and getting to know God again, it is about finding God’s voice to call you to the next step of your life.
 
To accomplish this as a church we will be studying the “I Am” statements of Jesus in the Gospel of John because Christ used them to help people understand God amidst the collision with their everyday lives in the first century.  There are several ways you can participate this season in this exploration as we journey with Jesus to the cross.
 
First, join us Sunday for worship and sermons.  Each week will focus on a different aspect of God’s character.  You can always catch up on sermons at www.shilohbillings.church/sermonslisten/, go online and download our app, or if you need a printed copy contact the office. 
 
Second, you can join me, Pastor Sarah Beck from Grace or Pastor Wendy from Evangelical in a group study on the book for our series.  I will teach an in-person class at Shiloh UMC at noon Tuesdays and It is also offered online.  Let Pastor Tyler know if you want to connect online.  Pastor Wendy is offering one at Evangelical UMC Wednesday at 6pm and Pastor Sarah at Grace UMC at 7pm Wednesday. 
 
Join us this Lent,
 
Pastor Tyler

A DAY AT THE FREE STORE – FEBRUARY 3, 2018 – A worship service (optional) was held at 9:30 am, prior to the store opening at 10 am.  Our own Pastor Tyler led the service.  A Valentine toy give-away for the children was held due to the generous donations of Valentine motif stuffed animals throughout the year.  A little boy, grinning ear to ear while holding a stuffed bear as big as he is, brings joy to him and the volunteers! A Birthday Bag, containing the items needed for a birthday cake and party is given to a child celebrating her 4th birthday.  These are provided by Dale Francetich, co-director of the Free Store and a member of Grace UMC.  In the 2 ½ hours the Free Store is open, 51 families shopped.  As each checked out, the soup mix assembled by our membership is available to take home.  Nearly all finished their visit with a free hot chili lunch donated, cooked, and served by the SUMC ladies!  Thanks to each of you for your support for this life-changing ministry.   
 
 “I AM” SAYINGS – We are beginning a new sermon series today. We will be studying the “I Am” sayings of Jesus in the scriptures.  This is one that is great to tap into questions about the character of not just Jesus, but of God, as we are told by our fore-bearers in the tradition that we can know.  Please join us for the series through worship and bible study.  A class is also offered at noon on Tuesdays.  Pastor Tyler is teaching this class at Shiloh. Beginning on February 21st, Pastor Sara at Grace UMC will offer one on Wednesdays at 7:00 pm and Pastor Wendy at EUMC will offer one on Wednesdays at 6:00 pm. We encourage individuals to attend the one that works best for you and to contact the church office to sign up where you plan to attend.
 
FREE STORE THANKS AND NEEDS – THANKS to the MYF kids and sponsors plus Corrine and Quincy Amundson for filling pop bottles with liquid laundry detergent for the shoppers.  The first Saturday they were available, all were gone within the first 15 minutes.  Clearly there is a need!
NEEDS: bottles of liquid laundry detergent, toiletries such as shampoo, toothbrushes, etc., men’s clothing and linens.  Your donations make SUCH a difference.
 
SAFE SANCTUARY TRAINING There will be a Safe Sanctuary training session on Tuesday, February 20th at 5:00 pm.  Pastor Tyler is offering this training for all people who will be serving children or youth in our church.  If you think you will serve them now or in the future, please attend.  Sign up by calling the office or email Pastor Tyler.
 
MENTAL HEALTH FRIENDS NETWORKThe Mental Health Friends Network was formed at First UMC in 2015 to bring Mental Health Issues out in the open and to provide a safe faith based environment for persons experiencing issues.  They also offer support and help for friends and family of people with mental health illnesses.   They do not intend to duplicate service of specialized groups.  The Mental Health Friends Network’s number is 406-245-3001 if you would like to connect with them.

Lent 2018 Begins

Welcome to Lent,  

This is a season in our church that takes us through the story of Jesus right up to Easter morning where we see the true power of God and Christ.  This season is about repenting, which can be interpreted as returning to “The Way.”   For the early church this season was used to teach new people in the faith about the tradition culminating with baptizing them on Easter. The early church was referred to as “The Way.”  My hope is to provide our church with multiple ways to find “Your Way” to Christ this season.  I would encourage you look through this list of opportunities and find one that allows you to receive, connect, and return to your faith this season.  

Ash Wednesday opportunities are listed below.  I encourage you to start your season by connecting tomorrow during the day to receive ashes or by joining us  tonight for Ash Wednesday service.

Below is a reflection from a colleague and writer of a blog I regularly write for.  If this fits you then I invite you to sign up for a daily email from Portico Collective, it is a blog that invites Christian reflections from a variety of voices.  These will also be available on our Facebook Page during Lent.

Below are instructions for an opportunity to receive daily text messages from our Annual Conference who is offering them as a reflections during this season.  

Maybe you might choose to use this 40 days of spiritual activities.  If you have a partner or kids to involve this is a great way for the season – go to https://goo.gl/DJ1CT1 to print this one out.  

Finally, there is the opportunity to engage in our Lenten Study below through sermons and also a class offered 3 different times and 2 different ways(online too).  

This season I invite you to connect, return and journey the Way of Christ with us.  

Pastor Tyler

Wisdom for Today
Is there no balm in Gilead? Is there no physician there? Why then have my people not been restored to health?
— Jeremiah 8:22 (CEB)
×
 

Day 1: Heal

I am the oldest of three boys, which means part of my childhood was the literal equivalent of rough and tumble. I have multiple scars that remind me of our escapades. Our sporadic brawls spread across a decade were documented by on-call physicians at multiple hospitals. There were many stitches; even more scrapes and abrasions.

We learned quickly, however, to avoid confrontations which resulted in bloodshed when at grandma’s house. Not for the reason you may think, though. There was no fear of punishment. It was actually quite the opposite. 

We were afraid of her balm — the homemade cure-all which she would always insist on applying to our wounds. She called it “Aunt Mary’s Salve.” It was a lumpy, earth-colored paste that lived inside an old baby food jar with a rusty, metal lid. It smelled like bloated death; repugnance given form.

But it also worked — and not just as a preventative measure. That rancid-smelling balm actually healed your wounds.

For the longest time, I couldn’t find a way to resolve this in my mind. Aunt Mary’s salve couldn’t have been remotely related to the biblical balm of Gilead. I’d always assumed such things were pleasant in both fragrance and texture. In fact, I’m certain I believed “pleasantness” to be the healing power of any balm.

Jesus, though — healer of the nations — makes a balm of spit and dirt to make a blind man see. Jesus — the great physician — is God in flesh; the incarnation tumbling toward death and decay like each of us. The one who makes the wounded whole is reduced to death himself.

Maybe Aunt Mary had it right when she concocted her balm. Maybe healing has to be a little repulsive to actually work. Sometimes, it takes something vile to remind us that there is more to life than the temporary pain we endure. A shock to our senses may be necessary to help us move beyond the sting of our wounds.

Today, as we smudge our heads with ash, may we remember God can — and does — heal our lives, relationships and communities. Like Lent, it isn’t always pleasant when its happening, though. Still, the Sunday of healing is coming. And if we plug our noses, we are likely to miss it.

— Matthew Johnson

February 11, 2018 – Pastor’s Corner

A message from our Pastor – 

This Sunday is our final Sunday of this sermon series about the “Road to Shiloh,” but as a Pastor I hope it is the beginning of our journey considering how we are called to be people of Christ in this new age.  During our sermon, we will be hearing from one of the people who has been called into professional ministry through the work of our church.  It has been important for me that this series involve voices of both a person going into ordained ministry from the church, Cassie King, and someone who we have supported in going to serve the gospel, this Sunday find out who that is.
 
I would strongly encourage each of you to go listen to last week’s sermon “Drawing Closer, Praying Closer.”  It can be found at this address https://goo.gl/z8fTDq and I will have written copies available for in fellowship after church Sunday. 
 
Next week also begins Lent, on February 14th, Valentines Day, we will celebrate Ash Wednesday.  At Shiloh you can stop in from 11:30-1pm to receive ashes.  I will then be at the City Brew at 1335 Golden Valley Circle(between Rehberg and Zimmerman on Grand) to offer Ashes for anyone who would like them.  Finally, we will be partnering with the other United Methodists in Billings to celebrate at Hope UMC, 244 Wicks Ln in the heights.  Dinner for people singing in the choir starts at 5:30, Dinner for others 6pm, and the service starts at 7pm.
 
Please consider joining one of the studies we have during Lent at Shiloh, Grace, and Evangelical churches, or online.  I am considering doing an additional late evening study online for folks who can’t make the current times listed in the bulletin.  If this is of interest please contact me by email or phone. 
 
Join us as we continue our journey,
Pastor Tyler

February 4, 2018 – Pastor’s Corner

A message from our Pastor – 

This Sunday in worship we will be continuing on our “Road to Shiloh.”  This Sunday’s focus will draw us into the challenges facing the church in reaching people with God’s love, specifically the new generations of Christians we all want to see.  I will be sharing with our church how Jesus took on the challenges of feeling overwhelmed by the questions of how to share God’s love and to draw closer to God even in the midst of the busy life humans lead.

As a part of the sermon I will be sharing two personal stories of members in our congregation.  I think it is important to let you know that I share stories like this with permission from those who have shared them with me.  My belief is that people’s stories are theirs to tell and that if I get the opportunity to share them, it is their choice to have someone do that.  If I have ever ask you, “Can I use that in a sermon?”  I am serious, but please know you can also tell me no, or ask for time to pray about that opportunity to share that story.  

One story is about the challenge that exists for many people to even cross the threshold of a church entry, but the power when it happens.  The person shared this in her story, “And there it was!! Unsuspecting, I’d received the “golden ticket” – an invitation from someone who BELONGED! It was like being invited to join a special club!”  

The other story I will share is about the power someone in our congregation has recently found her calling to make a difference in the world through prayer.  She shares this in her story, “God is good.  God is listening.  I am thankful.”  

I am in awe of the way God is calling us in prayer, and in person to share God’s love in the world.  God is calling each of us, as Cassie King say, “God does not call the equipped, he equips the called.”

Enthusiastic Peace,

Pastor Tyler
